UWA Profiles and Research Repository - Support and FAQs

The FAQs below will assist you to understand and use the functions of the UWA Profiles and Research Repository


If you are setting up or updating your UWA Profile, you may wish to work through our self-guided program, Polish Your Profile. This will assist you in enhancing your profile with up-to-date information about your research, teaching, professional activities and outputs.

Quarterly reminders will be sent to you requesting that you check your Profile and add any missing publications. The UWA Publications Manual outlines the eligibility and requirements for each audited category for inclusion in the ERA.

If you need further assistance please contact your Faculty Librarians:

Note: Changes you make in the UWA Profiles and Research Repository will display on your public profile without significant delays. However, depending on the data that is changed, the time frame for these to update may vary. If these changes do not display within the next day, please contact repository-lib@uwa.edu.au.
